July 5, 2021 / Bern, Switzerland
Today marks the 12th year since the Urumqi Massacre took place. Save Uighur remembers the thousands of victims who lost their lives during their struggles for liberty, equity, and equality. The memories of the Uyghur student protestors imprisoned, murdered, and cast away by the Chinese regime will always stay within our hearts. Their brave attempts to challenge Chinese government oppression etch a permanent place within the pages of history.
We, members of Justice for Uyghurs and friends gathered in Bern, Switzerland to commemorate the heroes of Urumqi massacre, as well as to demand Swiss government to recognize Uyghur genocide without delay and impose a sanction against the individuals and organizations involved in the crimes against humanity.
